There was chaos in the Wyvern Headquarter when one of the alarms started to shriek like crazy. Two men in blacks were seen running toward the center of the headquarter. Lan, the man with blue hair and another with blonde hair known as Bong. They ran toward a man sitting in front of the computer, fixing his glasses while the rest of his fingers working on the keyboard.
"Which one is it?" Asked Lan as he bent forward to get a closer look on the computer screen "It's the passway." The man answered. "Which one?" The man motioned to the big screen in front of them. "Holy moly, of all things why that one?" "Which one?" Bong looked at his partner next to him and asked. "It's the road not taken." His partner replied ruffling his blue hair.
"Lan, wasn't the passway sealed?" Lan nodded. It was indeed sealed soon after it was built two years ago. "Bong, do you still remember the requirement to use this passway?" He asked as he leaned against the desk. "Only the chosen one." Bong replied, receiving a nod from his partner. "The problem is the selection hasn't started yet." Confused, Bong stared at his partner with a questioning look all over his face. "I don't know." Lan clarified.
"CM, who's the invader?" Bong asked, his left hand on his waist while the other was stroking his beardless chin. "Gimme a moment. I'll check the CCTV nearby." CM's fingers were flying from one keyboard to another. It took him approximately three minutes to hack four CCTV as each was displayed on the big screen. There were unfathomable expressions in all their faces after watching the footages on screen.
"Lan, can you punch me?" Bong faced his partner with his punch-me-face. "Sure." Lan happily accepted his request and punch directly to his face. "Not on my face you dimwit!" Bong shouted as he barely able to dodge Lan's punch. CM who heard their bickers laughed. "Guys, how are we going to settle this? Termination?" He asked, finger tapping on the desk. Bong inhaled as he sat at the edge of the desk. Still couldn't believe what he saw. "You want to terminate such a beautiful specimen?" Bong glared at CM who was chuckling at his response.
"When will he be back?" Lan asked and lowered his voice when he mentioned the word 'he'. "Not sure." Both CM and Bong shook their heads. "Give Kristy a call. Let's confirm or else we'll be in trouble." CM nodded and immediately dialed Kristy's number. "Yo! I'm busy. Fast!" Three men were looking at each other, not believing their ears. "Why must you always get angry?" CM responded. "Five seconds, 5, 4..." The female voice started counting. The men went panicked. Lan nudged Bong to talk. "Hey Kristy, when will you and Master be back?" "Tomorrow morning," Kristy answered and ended the call.
"She sure is ..." "Cool?" CM continued as he looked at Bong's bewildered expression. "You still crushing her hard, huh?" Bong asked, his eyes teasing. "Uhuh, who doesn't love cool women?" CM responded and turn his chair facing the computer again. Bong and Lan looked at each other with funny expressions on their faces.
"What should we do about this?" Bong asked as he looked at the screen, his eyes glued to the face of a beautiful young girl on the screen. "This person is smart. She could tell that all the appearance are a facade. Should we recruit her?" CM answered, his face was showing that he was seriously considering his own suggestion. Bong nodded in agreement. "You kidding?" Lan bickered. "Just look at her chasing the two men away. She's cool!" CM replied as his eyes gleamed in excitement.
"We need further investigation. CM, find out the reason why she's there. Check footages in the mansion as well. Something must have happened for them to send her there." CM saluted as he engrossed himself on his computer. "Bong, give Tony or Liling a call, they should know what had happened. I should go and check the passway, lest something happened." Lan explained his plan to his partner. Bong nodded as he sat on a leathered sofa located in the corner of the room. Taking his phone out and started to make calls.
Three men were seen in action, they moved fast and professional, no hesitation on each course they took, showcasing their top-notched abilities. After a while, the three gathered again on the sofa circling CM's mini laptop.
"Anything?" Lan looked at the faces of his coworkers. "I've contacted Tony but CM has a better explanation than I do," Bong answered. CM pushed a button on his keyboard and footage was played on the screen. A whole ridiculous scenario played right to their eyes, prickling their ears with the absurdity of the entire sequence of events.
"What the f*ck! Is that a 21st-century adaptation of the Cinderella?" Bong threw his body on the sofa with an incredulous expression on his face. CM glanced at Lan who replayed some of the scenes. His forehead furrowed in disbelieve. "The whole incident was clearly a scheme! F*ck!" Bong cursed again. Lan stared at his partner trying to fathom his anger. He understood him the most especially his high sense of justice when it involved a beautiful woman.
"I've checked the passway. Nothing bizarre had happened. She must be in the cabin." Lan told them the result of his investigation. CM sighed as he said, "Hope she'll be okay." "Hell, she is. There is only darkness in there. She's just a girl, will she stand the whole night?" Bong expressed his frustration. "So, what do you suggest?" Irritated, CM asked. "Alright guys, chill! She'll be fine, the whole cabin is dark but not dangerous. For now, we need to ensure she doesn't find the switch to open the passway or else it will be us who's dead." Lan said but as soon as he finished his sentence, the alarm rang again.
"What is it now?" CM wailed as he ran to the main computer and what he saw next made his eyeball almost popped out. "We are so screwed!" He yelled both arms holding his head. "What happened?" Lan asked. "The passway..." CM pointed his finger in a certain direction, his face was slack, mouth slightly opened as color draining from his face as he stared wide-eyed at a door. "No way!" Lan who was looking to the same direction walked toward the door. As he got closer, the door opened.
